The prestigious Cleveland Clinic, known for its advanced heart programs, recently released a new battery of heart-related inflammation tests that add predictive value for both long-term and near-term heart attack risk. The concept is so novel it was featured in the cutting edge TED symposiums. You can see the YouTube video here.
The battery of tests include:
Lipoprotein-Associated Phospholipase A2 (LP-PLA2)
High-Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein (hsCRP)
F2 Isoprostanes (F2 IsoP's)

What would be most helpful to our community is to hear from members who have had one or more of these tests and what your docs have offered as suggestions to treat high test results for one or more of these tests. Can anyone help or provide insight and/or experience? Anyone even heard of these tests?
